Will I ever be normal again?

I have been dealing with anxiety ocd and dizziness for years now i started Zoloft about 4 years ago and yes it’s helped me for the most part, but I deal with dizziness almost everyday and just dumb thoughts and fears that stop me from doing so much! I just want to be me again will that ever happen? I use to be fearless I would feel great very energetic, I’m 28 years old and I feel like I’m 50 or more 😩 I never have energy I’m always feeling dizzy or weird or just thinking about what if this happens or that! I’m so sick of it I hate it I just want to be me again I want to be able to do what I want when I want without any fear or dizziness 😭 I believe in God yes and him and my kids have been my strength but I also ask him Lord until when? Has any one ever felt like this or has overcomed it?

Same, I feel much older than my age and I am exhausted of feeling this way. Constant fear and worries everyday of my life but I do know it is possible to get better, or at least I hope so! You are not alone and keep doing what you need to do to get better and you will see changes eventually.

Good luck!

I feel the same, I've had constant dizziness for over 3 months now. I've had anxiety and panic attacks for years, with this on top, I don't know how to cope. I can't give any advice, just know you are not alone

I deal with the dizziness every day...

It's the absolute worst of all the symptoms.

And doctors really don't like dealing with dizziness issues... makes it hard to get help.

I know, they don't seem to take dizziness seriously. I said it's stopping me doing anything but they just say it's anxiety and to do meditation. It's so difficult to cope with when there's no help.

I have the dizziness every day to.

On top of everything. It becomes very difficult to get buy.

Have you been given any medication for it? I've been prescribed beta blockers but I don't see how that would help when dizziness is a symptom of taking it. So I'm refusing to take it

No they just say it’s anxiety or that it’s vertigo but it’s been going on for years It really sucks because I get this feeling of weakness and I feel like I’m going to pass out

I understand, I've been dealing with this for 1.5 years, keep going round and round with doctors, and nothing helps,

That's exactly the same as me. I feel dizzy all the time and then often feel week and like I'm about to pass out. It's so horrible and I can't enjoy anything

I understand completely, people who don't experience it , just dont understand, it's the worst thing I've ever had to deal with. Makes my anxiety so much worse. And all the stupid worthless medications they throw at you.. if they had this problem I'm sure they would quickly find a solution

It's very hard, unfortunately, there are many people dealing with this issue.

It's so refreshing to speak to two people with the exact same problems I'm having, I've felt so alone and almost patronised by the GP. I told them I know when something is caused by anxiety but I feel like this is a physical problem. I tell them I can't function in the real world due to this and nobody helps. It's so frustrating
